5 SEPTEMBER–9 NOVEMBER 2014
Gwangju Biennale Exhibition Hall
Republic of Korea
The 10th Gwangju Biennale: Burning Down the House explores the process of burning and transformation, a cycle of obliteration and renewal witnessed throughout history. Evident in aesthetics, historical events, and an increasingly rapid course of redundancy and renewal in commercial culture, the Biennale reflects on this process of, often violent, events of destruction or self-destruction–burning the home one occupies–followed by the promise of the new and the hope for change.
Curated by Jessica Morgan, the Biennale will feature the work of 105 artists from thirty-six countries, including Singapore’s Heman Chong.
